Stay Secure This Holiday Season

Cybercriminals know you’ll be busy and your online guard may be down during this hectic time of year. Follow these 5 tips to stay safe this holiday shopping season:

  1. Check your credit card statements for purchases you didn’t make, and take advantage of free credit monitoring from sites like Credit Karma or Credit Sesame
  2. Scrutinize your email – it’s the #1 way hackers will target you
  3. Use and maintain antivirus software and make sure to keep your virus definitions up-to-date
  4. Avoid using the same PIN number or password for multiple accounts
  5. When checking accounts on your phone, always access bank or credit card accounts through their mobile apps, not browsers

Stay secure, and Happy Holidays!
